This article examines the status of poplar and willow research in New Zealand. Poplar research has been influenced by the need to stabilise the hill country. Clones have been developed by breeding programmes that are ideal to most climatic zones across the country and a range of choices faces landowners when choosing poplars for soil conservation, shelterbelts or timber. Other areas of research in poplars and willows are root development, pollarding and timber value. A study conducted at Massey University has shown that willows can be useful as a summer drought fodder and possible anthelmintic.
